After a glorious Easter Sunday with highs in the 60s to around 70 degrees, big weather changes are on the way to Kansas for April Fool's Day and early this week.
Look for increasing clouds Monday along with gusty northeasterly winds. Areas of light rain should develop across the southern half of our state and even through it will be much colder compared to the weekend, temperatures will stay warm enough so that no snow is expected. Highs will only climb into the 40s to around 50 degrees to start the week but the harsh winds will make it feel even cooler.
Some will see a mixture of rain and snow Monday night across western and northern Kansas but nothing worth measuring.
There will be lingering chance of light snow mainly across southwest Kansas through Tuesday morning where trace to two inch amosunts will be possible.
Temperatures will stay chilly through most of the week then finally climb back into the upper-50s and 60s by Friday.
